Alone With Her


(2006)***1/2

Ever met someone who was just perfect for you? They like all the same movies, read all the same books have all the same interests, in essence the perfect mate. Amy meets just that guy at a video store and his name is Doug, he happens to be returning the very same movie she watched the night before and he loved it too in fact his favorite scene was even the same as hers. She begins running into Doug pretty regularly and they become friends, good friends. Doug seems to always be there for her at just the right time comforting her through an onslaught of bad luck she has been having, what a guy. What would she think of Doug if she knew the real reason he knew just the right things to say was because he had stalked her, broken into her home and installed cameras in every single room.


This found footage style film knocks the creep factor right out of the park. Just stop and think for a moment about all the things you do in the privacy of your home. Your phone conversations or when you're in your bathroom or your bedroom for that matter. Now imagine that someone was watching every move and listening to every word. He even wore a button cam to capture his "chance" meetings with her. The film kept me engaged throughout waiting for that disastrous moment of truth to be revealed and it doesn't disappoint. Found footage junkies will love it.

This one sounds great! Never trust anyone named "Doug".

What do you mean “imagine” someone is watching my every move and listening to my every word?

That joke I made just reminded me of a true story. Lucky you!

When I was working in publishing a coworker received a proposal letter from a woman who wanted to write a book about her life. She included a list of nutty things that had happened to her, things that indicated she’d had some very bad luck but not that she was crazy -- until the last one: “Mysterious agents have been following me for years and making a movie of my life.”

My friend passed on the book. She figured she’d wait for the movie.
